Once More and Again

A day trip to Stratford for Al, Megs and Myself.

it wasn't the earliest of starts for us -
but we were still in Stratford by before lunch.

A quick stop in Waterstones for Megs -
then lunch at Cafe Rouge.

Then Henry V -
honestly it's very nearly my favourite play.

And this production was very special - 
the RSC's final part of the Richard II - Henry IV cycle - 
and the finale of a two year journey.

Everything was perfect - from the opening line of Oliver Ford Davies Chorus -
to Alex Hassel's Henry
I've never felt so involved, so stirred, so moved by the war.

Take out coffee afterwards - and we were home by 7 o'clock.

And that's it for Stratford 2015.

Previous Henry V's
